This is still not about encodings. Encoding is about how to transform integers (character numbers) to binary form. Think of UTF-8 or UTF-16 as methods to convert any integer (character number or not) to a certain binary form. ASCII, EBCDIC and ISO 8859-1 are encodings too, but what's more important with these are that they are coded character sets (their name imply a certain set of characters in a certain order). My message was about having a flexible way to select certain intervals of Unicode numbers, not about how to transform character numbers to binary form. After some more thinking and understanding however, I'm beginning to see the good sides in XML 1.1. If there is another XML version one day, I'd like to see many of these changes included. I wouldn't go as far as saying that the changes justifies a new version, but I still think they are good changes. There's some reservation here, until I understand all of it... :-) Gustaf
